Dr. Duggan's major research interests include: 1) the nutritional management of acute and persistent diarrhea, 2) micronutrient trials in developing countries, and 3) general aspects of energy and protein metabolism in catabolism. In the United States, Dr. Duggan's and his colleagues have performed studies evaluating the formulation and effectiveness of oral rehydration solutions for the treatment of acute diarrhea. In addition, they have applied state of the art nutritional assessment techniques (e.g., stable isotopes, indirect calorimetry, body composition methodologies) to patients with a variety of catabolic illnesses, including HIV/AIDS, inflammatory bowel disease, short bowel syndrome and cancer.
In both developing and industrialized countries, they have completed studies on the micronutrient status of children, including those with cystic fibrosis, malaria, undernutrition, and acute and chronic diarrhea.
Dr. Duggan is also the Site Director for the Glaser Pediatric Research Network, a multicenter research network for cutting edge pediatric clinical trials based at Children's Hospital, Boston as well as sites at Stanford, UCSF, UCLA and Baylor.
